I had the same problem today and I solved it...
Go to the Western Digital official website, choose your model and download the driver for win98..it works magically with XP. Fast and easy :)

The hard drive is almost dying. Did you try unplug and plug the power supply? Also, try restarting your pc and the hard drive might fix it. Do a hard boot on the hard drive by unplugging it on the pc and power and hold the power button for like 10-20 seconds(This will do a warm boot on the hard drive.) and then plug the hard drive back to its original place.

You probably still need to partition it, before you can even format it.
Try the disk manager in Windows.
In the start menu, right-click "My Computer" and in the popup menu, select "Manage".
One computer management comes up, select disk management and there you should see the disk. You can then create a partition and format it.

This is a known problem with these drives. Disabling USB legacy support in your Bios should solve the problem., it did in my case but at the expense of not being able to boot from a USB device. Definitley a problem with their enclosure or drive.

Take it our of the external encasing and plug it in directly to your motherboard. This has worked for me in the past. I just had my second wd external harddrive crash so now I will do the same process all over again.
